    Wink Which or that

    I read in a book that in the sentence: That is the kind of man that I dislike, we can't replace that with which. Could you please explain why? What is the antecedent, is it kind or man?


    Thank you in advance
    Tri

    Re: Which or that

    The antecedent is 'kind'.

    You can use 'that', 'which', or neither.

    'That is the kind of man I dislike.'
